St. Lucia (or what I call, Scandinavian Holiday Fun Day) on Dec. 13 that I'll be linking to over at Audrey Electric. In my heart, I'm Swedish/Finnish/Norwegian/or maybe a MOOMINTROLL, so I'm very excited about all of this.
COOL STUFF that made me happy this week:
Got this Play-Doh Sweet Shoppe pack awhile back, and the playdoh looks like funfetti! Good stocking stuffer.
Cinnamon and Ginger tea with persimmons.
This made me laugh and laugh. And laugh some more.
Snap Circuits. (these look AMAZING)
Magical Reindeer Food!
Glitter Ball Cookies!
A gift guide where everything is $10 or under.
Cool Book of the Week: I reviewed a book last year called 'One Red Apple'. The art was enchanting. So I was excited to see the same author/illustrator duo had done this holiday book called 'Hanukkah Haiku'. I saw it at the library and it was SO PRETTY I quick stopped in my tracks. (Very Junie B. language eh? Julia's on a huge Junie B. Jones kick right now.) The book is laid out as a poem, detailing the elements of the Hanukkah celebrations, with blessings written in English and Hebrew. It's absolutely breathtakingly gorgeous!
Have a lovely weekend! Julia and I have been going through the Christmas cookie recipe box my aunt gave us a few years ago. I think it's officially Cookie Time. Although I feel tired already at the prospect of the annual fight Andrew and I will be having over sugar cookies ~ to frost, or not to frost. (I vote frost, because I have more than a modicum of sense.)
